Folkestone Triennial prep underway

As part of this year’s Folkestone Triennial arts festival, one of KSA’s Structural & Environmental tutors, Ben Godber, has been working with artist Jyll Bradley, framer Mark Derbyshire and Creative Foundation to¬†create the ‘Green/Light’ project.

Ben describes the project as follows:

“I have been working with the artist, Jyll Bradley, for just over a year to help realise Green/Light which will form part of the Folkestone Triennial 2014. Both the Triennial and the former gasworks site have a particular significance for Jyll, having been born in the town in the year the gasworks closed. The former gasworks site presents a number of challenges, and it was a pleasure to be able to involve former and current students of mine from the University of Kent in realising the artist’s vision”

Past and present KSA students have been on the site in progress and helped install screw pegs along a grid.
